‘After this prayer, the meeting place shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Then they preached the word of God with boldness..’ (Acts 4:31 NLT)
It is time to be bold with your words!
At Christmas time more than ever, you can get away with being bold with invites to church and even with sharing your personal faith.
We need to start by being loving and showing kindness and compassion, but the power of the gospel is in its telling and hearing. Each of you has an amazing story of the grace of God in our lives, share it. Testimonies are powerful evangelistic tools.
Remember that you do not walk the path alone, lean into God for courage and pray that the Holy Spirit will inspire and empower your words.
Remember Jesus with the woman at the well, the Holy Spirit gave him the exact words to speak into her circumstances leading to her dramatic conversion. Who is there in your world that God wants you to speak to?
Remember that Jesus was just on a journey but came upon this woman. Be watchful and mindful this week as you go about your daily life for “God opportunities” and people He may pout in your path. Pray for wisdom and courage and go for it! Use the power of invitation to invite others to the Carol Service.
It’s time to gossip the gospel!
